Game Master for this session was Charles Plemons.

After dispatching the base camp, screeches rent the air as crimson raptors hurtled into view.  Their riders slipped to the ground and drew forth deadly obsidian blades as the dinosaurs circled out running low and ready.  One of the riders strode confidently toward the team, a smirk upon his face and hatred burning in his eyes.  The man, an elf, had a tall blue Mohawk and pale white skin with sharp bone spikes piercing his flesh in intricate and painful patterns.  A dozen scalps bounced about his waist, tethered by still-attached hair.  He smiled revealing teeth filed to sharp points, and declared a fight to the death, winner eat all!  Nemtlac the Cannibal had arrived!  A velociraptor ravaged Singing Mammoth and nearly killed him.  Standing Bison took a barrage of hits from raptors and Nemtlac.  Wolf Spirit and the animals began tearing into foes and weeding through them.  Soon only Nemtlac remained, and he brutally slashed the party with his obsidian blades before the wolf ripped out his throat.  In the aftermath, they found another Dawn Seal fragment and a magical toothed necklace.

The group returned to the camp of Rides-the-Moon and were dispatched to Tletltepetl (let-ill-tep-i-til), the Fire Mountain.  They were warned an otomi warrior named Tepoizcat had taken the sixth fragment there and guards it with his iron-edged macuahuitl.  The dungeon is near the City of Skulls and hordes of ravenous marbaq.  The team set out and overcame many dangers before discovering a little-used entrance into the dungeon.  Within they found part of the floor had collapsed about five feet down and ten feet across, and the stone nearly glowed with heat.  Wolf Spirit and the wolf took a running jump and crashed headlong into a sheet of glass on the far side!  Rather than bounce off into the hole, their combined weight smashed through.  Both suffered lacerations, but that was far better than the burns they would have suffered.  With the trap now revealed, the rest of the team was able to safely leap across.

Deeper in the complex, they found the heat had partially melted the walls and floor.  In places molten rock bubbled into view.  Ahead a massive one-eyed magtail, a cross between scorpion and centipede, awoke.  The team found its hard shell very resistant to bladed weapons, but with some persistent clubbing, they were able to overcome.
